Five Foods starting from letter "X"

From letter X, there are no eatables in Indian cuisine, at least not so common. So I looked for dishes, fruits, or vegetables starting from "X" from around the world. There are many but I am sharing only five of them here. From my research, I could find 26 food items starting from letter "X".
